The car was parking for about two weeks.
When it started a white smoke with a little water came out from the exhaust pipe and also from the right side of the engine.
Touching the gas pedal incriadsing the idle to 3.00 rpm the smoke increased.
After the car was warmed the amount of smoke deminished but never stop

You need to get the tests below done to confirm a blown headgasket

Have it block and pressure tested-do the block first to pinpoint a combustion leaking into the cooling system or a gas analyzer to sniff for hydrocarbons at the radiator fill neck.

Pressure test: do not do a pressure test if there's leakage at the headgasket this might cause coolant into the cylinders and lock it up or bend a connecting rod if cranked thereafter. The headgasket should be repaired before doing the pressure test.
